Karsten Creightney and Sarah Hadley

October 1, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Karsten Creightney • Pieces
Sarah Hadley • Story Lines
September 21–October 22
Reception: Saturday, October 1, 6–8 pm

Richard Levy Gallery is pleased to present Pieces, an exhibition of prints and paintings by Albuquerque artist Karsten Creightney. In the project room we will be showing five photographs by Sarah Hadley from her series Story Lines.

Karsten Creightney combines hand-printed papers, paint, and found materials to create compositions that are both representational and abstract. He uses flowers as a common motif to symbolize joy and resilience. His signature style includes screen-printed Ben-day dots. Creightney plays with the illusions of surface and depth in his layered artworks to create alternate realities.

Karsten Creightney has exhibited his work at numerous galleries and museums. His work can be found in the collections of the Albuquerque Museum, Cleveland Museum of Art, Detroit Institute of Arts, Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Springfield Art Museum, among others. He is an Assistant Professor in printmaking at the University of New Mexico and lives in Albuquerque.

Sarah Hadley’s Story Lines series explores the concepts of female identity and memory. Hadley layers black-and-white images of a woman with interiors and exterior environments. She has found inspiration for this body of work in 1960s cinema and surrealism. In addition to being an artist, Hadley founded the Filter Photo Festival in Chicago. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in Portugal, Argentina, Australia, China, and Spain. She resides in Los Angeles.
